League Information

West Union Parks and Recreation Director: Kathy Guyer.

West Union Soccer Head Coach: Ignacio Fuentes.

The West Union Soccer program will continue to be part of the Northeast Iowa Soccer League. This is a Level 3 Soccer League. This is a formal league that follows the Iowa Soccer Association guidelines.

Spring 2018 Season Dates: NEW

Practice will run from the week of March 26th through the week of May 14th. The weeks of May 21st and May 28th are optional depending if team has a game on June 2nd. Practice are once a week for 8U. Twice a week for 10U, 12U and 15U.

Game Days: Saturdays mornings or afternoons depending on gender and age. The length of the game depends on the category of the child but it should not run over 1 hr. The location of the games depends on the Northeast Iowa Soccer League schedule. The games will run from April 14th through May 19th. June 2nd is for re-scheduled games. No games on Memorial Day weekend.

Teams

Who can be in a team?

EVERYONE. No child will be rejected to be part of a team. There can be more than one team for every category. The more teams we pull the better. This is level 3 soccer. Note that under the Level 3 rules, each player should be guaranteed to play at least 50% of the total time in the league. No player shall be forced off a team by a coach or by a parent due to lack of playing ability. The only reason a child would not be able to join is when we do not have enough children of the same age to make a team. In that case, we will notify you and refund your money.

Classification:

Teams will be formed depending on age and gender. We are opening the program for 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U categories. The classification goes depending on child’s year of birth as follow:

8U: Born in 2010 and 2011.
10U: Born in 2008 and 2009.
12U: Born in 2006 and 2007.
14U: Born in 2004 and 2005.
15U: Born in 2003.

If there are enough girls to form a team, the team will be entering the girls’ league. Otherwise, girls will be playing in the coed league.

Uniforms

Separate fees are listed for shirt, shorts, and socks. Please order whatever you need for your child. Uniform fees are not included in the registration fees. Uniform fees are listed separately from registration fees. If your child had a uniform from a previous season and it still fits, a new jersey is not required. However shorts are now required.

For practice, children can wear any color of shorts or sweatpants (no jeans), t-shirt, shin guards and shoes or soccer cleats.

NOTE. NEW: You will need to purchase new socks and shorts. We want all children have a complete uniform now.

Please note that uniforms are not included in the registration fee. They are listed separately on the information packet.

Coaches

We will need two parent coaches for every team.Please consider volunteering to be a coach. Even if you don't have experience you can make a difference coaching a team. You will be given the necessary tools and guidance to coach your team successfully.

Responsibilities as Coach:

Each coach will be responsible for coaching his/her team during practice. Each coach will be responsible to attend his/her soccer game and act as a coach. These duties include but are not limited to: who will be playing first, determine who comes in and out during the game, keep an eye on the discipline of the team and outline a strategy for the game.

Each coach will be responsible to provide a good example of behavior for the players during practice and games. We want the coaches and players to have fun while learning about sportsmanship, competition and the game.

Games

Number of games: We are guaranteed to play six games during the season in the Northeast Iowa Soccer League.

Location:If we have enough referees, coaching staff and the regulated field, we will be allowed to host three of those games. Away games will vary depending on the calendar of the League. Limited travel is requested for 8U and 10U teams. 12U, 14U and 15U teams might travel as far a Mason City.

Referees

We are in need of certified referees. If you are interested on becoming a referee, please let Kathy Guyer or Ignacio Fuentes know. The West Union community is very low on certified referees and that might impede our ability to play games at home.

Registration

Registrations must be entered by February 8th. A Late fee of $10 will be assessed for registrations after Feburary 8th. We will not take any registrations after February 15th.

PICTURE: It is important that you send a picture of your child after you send your registration to the Park and Rec. That way they get their league’s passes. Please send the picture to nacfuentes@yahoo.com with the name of your child.
